The deadline has already passed for you to submit an application to attend the Muslim Youth of North America’s Annual National Youth Training Program, operated by the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), which runs from June 30th through July 7th, that is if you are between the ages of 12-18.
The summer camp is being held at Camp-Y Noah of the YMCA of Akron in Clinton, Ohio, and features a number of well-known speakers. By “well-known” I mean controversial, not popular. In fact, the event’s speakers list reads like a “Who’s Who” of Islamic extremism.
Leading the list is ISNA Majlis Member, Jamal Badawi, who also sits on the board of the Canadian affiliate of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). Both ISNA and CAIR were recently named by federal prosecutors as unindicted co-conspirators in a HAMAS terror financing trial currently underway in Texas (see my “CAIR Fingered by Feds”).
Badawi is also a close associate of Yousef Al-Qaradawi, who has been identified as a “Specially Designated Global Terrorist” by the US government and banned from entering the country. Qaradawi has issued fatwas authorizing suicide bombings in Israel and attacks against US troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. Badawi is currently listed as a member of the board of trustees of the International Union of Muslim Scholars and a member of the European Council for Fatwa and Research – two organizations organized and headed by Qaradawi. He also issues live fatwas for Qaradawi’s Islamonline.net website.

From FrontPage Magazine, H/T Central Ohioans Against Terrorism blog:
From the UK Telegraph (H/T to Debbie Schlussel)
45 Muslim doctors planned US terror raidsAdditional info from Debbie Schlussel:
A group of 45 Muslim doctors threatened to use car bombs and rocket grenades in terrorist attacks in the United States during discussions on an extremist internet chat site.
Police found details of the discussions on a site run by one of a three-strong "cyber-terrorist" gang.
They were discovered at the home of Younis Tsouli, 23, Woolwich Crown Court in south-east London heard.
One message read: "We are 45 doctors and we are determined to undertake jihad and take the battle inside America.
"The first target which will be penetrated by nine brothers is the naval base which gives shelter to the ship Kennedy." This is thought to have been a reference to the USS John F Kennedy, which is often at Mayport Naval Base in Jacksonville, Florida.
The message discussed targets at the base, adding: "These are clubs for naked women which are opposite the First and Third units."
It also referred to using six Chevrolet GT vehicles and three fishing boats and blowing up petrol tanks with rocket propelled grenades.
Investigators have found no link between the Tsouli chat room and the group of doctors and medics currently in custody over attempted car bomb attacks in London and Glasgow.
However, sources said it was "definitely spooky" that the use of doctors for terrorist purposes was being discussed in jihadi terrorist circles up to three years ago.
Part of the inquiry into the London and Glasgow incidents will focus on whether al-Qa'eda has recruited doctors or other medical professionals because they are less likely to attract suspicion and can move easily around the western world.
The three "cyber terrorists" - a British national and two who had been given the right to live in Britain - are facing lengthy jail sentences after admitting using the internet to spread al-Qa'eda propaganda inciting Muslims to a violent holy war and to murder non-believers.
They had close links with al-Qa'eda in Iraq and believed they had to fight jihad against a global conspiracy by kuffars, or non-believers, to wipe out Islam.
The three are the first defendants in Britain to be convicted of inciting terrorist murder on the internet. They waged cyber-jihad on websites run from their bedrooms.
Tsouli promoted the ideology of Osama bin Laden via email and radical websites. He said in one message he was "very happy" about the July 7 bombings in London in 2005.
Tsouli, along with Tariq Daour, a biochemistry student, and Waseem Mughal, a law student, were intelligent, computer-literate men who promoted violent propaganda.
They created chat forums to direct willing fighters to Iraq and discuss murderous bomb attacks around the world. Films of hostages and beheadings were found by police.
Daour, 21, of Bayswater, west London, who was born in the United Arab Emirates, yesterday admitted inciting another person to commit an act of terrorism wholly or partly outside Britain. Moroccan-born Tsouli, 23, of Shepherd's Bush, west London, and British-born Mughal, 24, of Chatham, Kent, admitted the same charge on Monday.
They are due to be sentenced today. They also admitted conspiring together and with others to defraud banks, credit card companies and charge card companies. Daour had instructions for making explosives and poisons, the court was told. Police found instructions on causing an explosion with "rocket propellant'' and constructing a car bomb.
In one on-line conversation, Daour, asked what he would do with £1 million, replied: "Sponsor terrorist attacks, become the new Osama."
The three men outwardly appeared to be leading normal lives, studying and living with their parents. Tsouli had come to the UK with his family from Morocco in 2001.
Mughal had a degree in biochemistry from Leicester University and was studying for his masters.
Daour, who was granted British citizenship in May 2005, had applied to start a law degree.
Now, the British are changing their policy of recruiting and not scrutinizing Islamic medical professionals they've brought to their country. And they've pledged to tighten the system and crack down on this problem.Welcome to the newer, kinder, friendlier, multicultural Amerikka.
But, here in America, we're NOT doing the same. Michael "Serpenthead" Chertoff a/k/a "Mr. Burns" has sent ZERO directives to Citizenship and Immigration Services to re-evaluate medical visas for Muslim doctors. Unfortunately, many Muslim doctors come here on special visas to work in small towns and at big universities, when we actually have no shortage of either. And the DHS Serpenthead looks the other way, despite past front page stories on this in the Wall Street Journal.
And a question for my friends in the FBI offices in Detroit and Chicago, who I know read this site. When will you re-open your stalled investigation into the large group of Syrian medical doctors in Detroit who raised money for HAMAS and other terrorists? You know you have wiretaps and financial records documenting this, but you did nothing and shut it down. Why?
Will it take them killing their American patients or killing other Americans for you to finally do something?
Actually, I think you will never do anything, no matter what. The Agent Harry Samit episode (see also, here) speaks volumes.
And that's why you're Famous But Incompetent. The street level agents are good, but they're working for FBI supervisors who engage in PC Orthodoxy with the "Religion of Peace and attempted British bombings by Doctors."
